increase powerinline WS-C2960+24LC-L then max 15.4 Watts

Good day all,

 

I have a question, we have some Cisco WS-C2960+24LC-L switches, these are with 8ports PoE.
I have connected an AIR-CAP3702I-Z-K9 to one of the ports, and it is functioning ok.

 

The only thing is that the AP only gets 15.4 Watts because this is the maximum this switch gives per port.
But is there a way to increase this to 16.7 Watts ? now the 3702 is not fully functioning, because it will not use all antennas.

 

I just have two AP per switch, other 6 ports or not used for PoE.

 

Available:370.0(w)  Used:30.8(w)  Remaining:339.2(w)

Fa0/8     auto   off        0.0     n/a                 n/a   15.4  

 

 

Anyone have an idea ??

 

Thanks in advanced

The power inline static max command at the interface level should let you set the power to a higher or lower level than the default of 15.4W

I'm not sure what the max is on the 2960, but here is a 6500:

Switch(config-if)#power inline static max ?
  <4000-16800>  milli-watts

Be advised changing this setting will reset power to the port, so the AP will reboot.
